Situation Overview

 Severe Tropical Cyclone Lola is the strongest off-season tropical cyclone in the history of the Southern Hemisphere. The first tropical cyclone and severe tropical cyclone of the 2023–24 South Pacific cyclone season, Cyclone Lola made landfall in Vanuatu as a Category 5 storm. Cyclone Lola was the third severe tropical cyclone to impact Vanuatu during 2023 after Cyclones Judy and Kevin had impacted the island nation earlier that year.

Due to the devastating impacts of the storms, the status of the infrastructural integrity of approximately 200 schools across the islands remained unknown and required assessment prior to the commencement of the school year, potentially impacting tens of thousands of children.  Airlink partners have been completing these critical assessments on the Outer Islands of Vanuatu, including access/transport assessments, infrastructure assessments, and structural integrity assessments.
